Welcome To Our Latest ERI Interns
Introducing our latest ERI interns:-
“My name is Emma Bacchetto and I’m from Canberra, Australia. – I am currently studying law and politics at the University of Canberra, with the intention of working in human rights. I work in the Edmund Rice network as an archivist for St Edmund’s College in Canberra. I have volunteered in homelessness, mental health and children who have disabilities. I love to paint and cook. I am very interested in international relations and politics. I have a love of social justice and I am particularly interested in human rights issues facing asylum seekers and refugees. This internship is a great opportunity to observe how the law and human rights interact, and will lend insight into how I might employ my studies to help create social justice.”

“My name is Anthony Cocomazzo from Ballarat (near Melbourne), Australia. I have been volunteering with Edmund Rice Network since 2009 mainly with Edmund Rice Camps and Edmund Rice Community and Refugee Services. In 2014 and 2015 I worked full time for the Edmund Rice Centre Amberley Youth Ministry Retreat Team coordinating and facilitating community engagement opportunities for students. I love football (soccer), Australian music, travel and meeting new people. I am passionate about many human rights issues. I am very excited to embrace this opportunity to learn and to grow spiritually. I hope to gain skills and knowledge that I can utilise to better assist those experiencing injustices in the future.”
